It turns out that, more than 200 years ago, Ekeblad began working to make potatoes a more important part of the human diet.For a long time, potatoes were not thought to be good for humans to eat.

Ekeblad heard that potatoes were being used to make alcohol in Germany.She then started growing and experimenting with potatoes herself.And in 1746, she discovered that potatoes could be turned into something similar to flour.This required boiling, mashing and drying the potatoes.
